A battle-worn soldier

Old Faithful

This is the brush that I've used for most of this entire series of new paintings. It has been in use off and on for over 9 years. This image was taken a few months ago so the brush is even a little more worse for wear. I've started breaking in some new brushes but this one will always have a special place in my heart. It's only a mater of a few short weeks before I'll have to send it off to brush heaven. The technique I've been using for this series requires the crappiest brushes I can find.
